Tenth Circuit Judge on Short List for Possible Supreme Court Vacancy
....in a 1998 op-ed piece for The Wall Street Journal, McConnell contended that "the reasoning of Roe vs. Wade is an embarrassment to those who take constitutional law seriously." "The right of privacy is nowhere mentioned in the Constitution," McConnell wrote. "The Supreme Court brought great discredit on itself by overturning state laws regulating abortion without any persuasive basis in constitutional text or logic." On another simmering social issue -- the relationship between church and state in America -- McConnell has built a legal foundation from which conservatives argue that it's constitutional, advantageous and well within American tradition to mingle political and religious goals. McConnell believes that government does not breach the wall between church and state when using religious institutions to administer federal social programs, or when a university offers public funds to student religious groups. He supports school voucher programs and aid to parochial schools.
